Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Software

SOP software eases the management of SOPs and standardizes their creation.

Standard operating procedures (SOPs) are most effective when they can easily be located, updated, and tracked. Traditional paper SOPs lack this capability. SOP software reduces the amount of time spent creating and tracking down SOPs. The best SOP software systems give companies complete control over their SOPs and increase compliance.

Up-to-Date SOPs

One of the hassles of printed SOPs is trying to find the most recent version. This usually means looking through every different version you can find to locate the one with the latest revision date. With SOP software, only the most recent revision is available.

While an up-to-date SOP is important, so is seeing changes that an SOP has undergone, who authorized those changes, and why those changes were made. It’s rare to find a paper-based or hybrid system that offers this information, but SOP software provides that level of traceability.

Avoiding Bottlenecks

Keeping track of revised or new SOPs and making sure that the correct people sign them is a fulltime job without a software solution. With automation, documents are routed for approval and escalated if not approved in a timely manner.

Employee Training

SOPs do not exist in a vacuum. Once they have been approved, they need to be distributed to employees for training purposes. An ideal SOP management software solution should automatically initiate training and monitor whether it has been completed.
